Domestic abuse awareness
30 Mar
Dear Colleagues, You have likely seen the focus on an increase in cases of domestic abuse in the national and international press during the Covid-19 restrictions. We are working with partners to ensure victims of domestic abuse are not forgotten during this time. We have put some additional guidance and support signposting on the WBC website and are putting further advice and support links on social media via WBC and WSP. The Domestic Abuse Awareness attachment has been sent across the volunteer sector and community organisations. Please share the attached with your teams and with your wider networks. Cheshire Fire and Rescue have confirmed they continue to support any DA referral received during the Covid 19 epidemic to provide re-assurance against any threats of arson received. The occupier will be contacted to discuss if they have symptoms of C19, fire Safety advice will be provided to the occupier via the telephone conversation, then a visit will be implemented to fit smoke detectors and fire retardant letter box. We will be linking with the Police and pan-Cheshire partners in the coming days to develop a wider response.

COVID-19: Statement from HSE and DfE relating to certificate expiry
24 Mar
FAW, EFAW and PFA certificates that expired on or after 16th March can have a 3 month extension to their certificate if they are unable to requalify as a direct result of COVID 19. COVID-19: Statement from HSE and DfE relating to certificate expiry Health and Safety Executive statement The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is aware that people holding Offshore Medic (OM), Offshore First Aid (OFA), First Aid at Work (FAW) or Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) certificates nearing expiry date, might experience disruption to access to requalification training as a result of events or circumstances generated by the coronavirus pandemic. HSE’s current guidance on the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations 1981: https://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/l74.pdf and the Offshore Installations and Pipeline Works (First-Aid) Regulations 1989 https://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/l123.pdf is that those holding an OM, OFA, FAW or EFAW qualification should undertake retraining before their original certificate expires and HSE strongly recommends that employers, and individuals holding those qualifications should plan for requalification training well in advance of expiry dates. If however requalification training is prevented for reasons associated directly with coronavirus or by complying with related government advice, it is reasonable and practical to extend the validity of current certificates by up to 3 months. Anyone taking advantage of this extension should be able to describe clearly their reasons for delaying requalification training, and demonstrate steps they have taken to undertake the training, if required. This guidance comes into effect for certificates expiring on or after 16th March 2020. HSE will review this matter over the coming months and will issue further statements as necessary. Department for Education statement The Department for Education supports the HSE statement regarding the extension of first aid certificates during coronavirus emergency and that it can be applied to paediatric first aid certificates held by staff in early years provision.
COVID-19 Advice: Daily Attendance return - Access to DFE Sign In
24 Mar
Following the recent DfE request for attendance information to be returned each weekday from schools providing places to pupils and students of key workers - please note that you will need to use a DfE Sign In (Secure Access) account to return the data. Government Publications - COVID-19 Attendance Recording The log in details will be the same ones used to log into other DfE Secure Access services (eg Analyse School performance, Ofsted-Fetch IDSRs, S2S and (in the case of Academies) user access to COLLECT) Every school has a DfE Sign In (Secure Access) administrator account and they are able to maintain user accounts across your school. If you are unsure of your user details, please speak to your administrator in the first instance – this is often (but not limited to) the Headteacher, Office Manager or Data Manager. If you are unsure who your school’s administrator is, then please contact DfE’s helpdesk via this link Please be aware that DfE response timescales to account requests are unknown at this time. Ideally, please try and locate users of Secure Access within the school in the first instance. Unfortunately, LA colleagues are unable to set up accounts or reset passwords - this facility is maintained by the Secure Access administrators at school and DfE. If you have any queries about the log in process, please contact the Information Management team via: informationmanagementrequests@warrington.gov.uk
